The avant-garde stories in the beginning of the book intertwine two common themes—motherhood and death—in innovative ways. In contrast, the stories in the second half follow a more conventional format, each containing a beginning, middle, and end, and describe life in the Peruvian fields. Elements of fantasy enrich the tone of the pieces in this anthology from an influential Latin American writer.

 

Dividida en dos grupos balanceados de cuentos, esta colección presenta algunas de las mejores narrativas escritas por el poeta peruviano César Vallejo. Las historias vanguardistas al principio del libro tejen dos temas comunes—la maternidad y la muerte—de manera innovadora. Por el contrario, los cuentos de la segunda mitad siguen un formato más convencional, cada uno conteniendo un principio, un medio y un fin, y describen la vida en los campos de Perú. Elementos de fantasía enriquecen el tono de las piezas en esta antología de un influyente escritor latinoamericano.
